Default 58 mm -> 43 mm step-down ring?

I have a Raynox DCR-250 and I'm not real happy with the mounting system. I would rather use a step-down ring to ensure that the lens is completely centered on my Fuji S9000. Does anyone know whether a 58 mm -> 43 mm step-down ring is available? Has ayone else successfully mounted the DCR-250 with step-down rings?

I am fairly certain I have seen 58mm->43mm rings. B&H Photo or Adorama will probably have them in stock. KEH.com has used equipment, and may have one as well. Haven't tried it myself, but it should work. Naturally, at shorter focal lengths, you will certainly have some vignetting, but at full zoom it will probably work fine.

Probably Fotodiox. They have any/all sizing rings. Even some oddball ones.

Thanks for replies. Most photo sites (B&H, Adorama etc.) don't have it.
